Nebraska Top 15 Prospects

Who are the best players in the state is always something to talk about. It's interesting to see how many get a chance to head down to Lincoln or head out of state for another Division I offer. More than that, it's also an opportunity for those of you in-state to get out and support these players and these teams. Here is Big Red Report's, pre-summer camp top 15 list.

It's at least a little clear before summer camp who the top two or three players might be in the state based on their play last year and the interest that they have received up to this point. But, it's a bit of a crap shoot to fill out a top 15. Regardless, Big Red Report is sticking their neck out on this list of 15 who have made the Pre-Summer Camp Nebraska Top 15 list. Enjoy!

1. Andrew Rodriguez, OL, 6-foot-6, 298-pounds, Aurora – COMMITTED TO NEBRASKA - Clearly the top player in the state. Huge frame. Tremendous upside.
2. Jesse Hinz, DT, 6-foot-4, 290-pounds, Beatrice – Big frame on a DT. Hinz weighed in at around 290 pounds at the spring game.
3. Ron Coleman, ATH, 6-foot-0, 240-pounds, Omaha North – Coleman is an excellent athlete and strong as an ox. Question where he fits. DT? FB?
4. Antaries Daniels, RB, 5-foot-11, 190-pounds, Omaha Northwest – Had good summer camp last year, needs a break on the field in fall. New coach and offense to the rescue.
5. Austin Kaczor, TE, 6-foot-4, 210-pounds, Ewing – Good size as a tight end combined with good speed (4.8/40). Might be able to play DE as well.
6. Lincoln Hansen, OL, 6-foot-6, 287-pounds, Omaha Millard North – Impressive size. Played for down team last year. Could really emerge this fall.
7. Sir Bullock, WR, 6-foot-1, 175-pounds, Papillion-LaVista – 4.5 speed, Bullock is a big play threat for Papillion-LaVista and is part of a super, WR tandem.
8. Glenn Lewis, WR, 6-foot-1, 170-pounds, Papillion-LaVista – The other part in the WR tandem at LaVista, Lewis can hurt you with the ball in his hands.
9. Stephon Washington, RB, 5-foot-8, 175-pounds, Omaha Burke – Washington has real big-play potential with his 4.4 speed.
10. Tyler Evans, S, 6-foot-2, 175-pounds, Ewing – Evans is a safety that has good size and speed to go along with it (4.48/40). Could really move up the list.
11. Clint Belina, LB, 6-foot-1, 195-pounds, Howells – A real athletic player that projects to play the outside linebacker position at the collegiate level.
12. Zach Lempka, DE, 6-foot-5, 215-pounds, Sterling – Big frame. Needs to be more dominant at the competitive level that he is playing at in Nebraska.
13. Jordan Tyrance, WR/LB, 6-foot-3, 197-pounds, Lincoln Southwest – Recognize the last name? The son of former Husker Pat Tyrance is a bit under the radar and could surprise this year.
14. Bronson Marsh, QB/ATH, 6-foot-0, 200-pounds, Omaha Millard South – Threw for over 2,000 yards each of the past two seasons. 4.5 speed could project him to play another position.
15. Bryce Dietz, OL, 6-foot-5, 285-pounds, Lincoln North Star – A strong, athletic big man. Might be a little over-shadowed by other OL in the state this year.

The 2010 year looks to be very deep in talent this year with a cherry on top that is obviously Rodriguez. There is a clear, top player in the state there are some others that are just right there on the cusp of getting some Division I attention that could lead to an offer. I think that players like Antaries Daniels and Austin Kaczor might be in the wrong place at the wrong time considering Nebraska's current status at running back and tight end.

I think that there are a couple outside the top five that could step up and possibly pick up a Nebraska offer. One is Lincoln Hansen. I think that Millard North had a down year last year, which is uncharacteristic, but with a little bit better year as a team could improve the look that Hansen gets. I also like what Tyler Evans brings on paper when it comes to his size and speed. Also, safety is a position that is going to get a look this year with Ricky Thenarse and Larry Asante graduating.
